Studio B, in Boyertown, will show "Roy G BIV," an exhibit featuring seven artists inspired by the colors of the rainbow. The show opens Friday, March 16, with a public reception from 5 – 8 p.m.

The exhibit was inspired by 17th century scientist Isaac Newton’s explanation of the rainbow, according to gallery director Susan Biebuyck.

“Newton explained the rainbow by passing light through a prism and identified the visible spectra as seven distinct colors represented in the acronym ‘Roy G. Biv.’ ”

“Our show is a collection of art from seven artists whose creativity acted as a prism — refracting, bending and expanding their interpretations of each color into an array of styles and techniques.”

Participating artists include:

  • Rich Houck
  • Birdie Zoltan
  • Judy Lupas
  • Lauralynn White
  • Cynthia Thomasset
  • Suzanne Fellows
  • Susan Biebuyck

 

The show will be hung in the order of nature’s light spectrum.

The exhibit will be open through April 14.

 About Studio B:

Studio B, located in the heart of Boyertown, is the home of the Arts and Activities Alliance, a committee of Building a Better Boyertown, a nonprofit Main Street program dedicated to revitalizing small towns.

The studio celebrates lifelong learning, creativity and personal involvement in the visual and literary arts, offers opportunities to enhance creativity, health, and wellness through the arts and seeks to be a dynamic part of Boyertown community, a “go to” destination for learning, fun and friendship. The studio seeks to showcase the work of fine artists in themed exhibits — some juried, some open to all — and welcomes art in diverse media.

In addition to art exhibits and classes, Studio B also hosts catered dinners for service clubs and small groups, gallery talks, and “Getting to Know You” opportunities.

Visitors are always welcome to view the changing exhibits; take lessons in the visual, literary, and communication arts offered by highly-trained local artists and teachers; and schedule small events or parties in its elegant facility.

The studio collaborates with the Boyertown Area Community Library and Boyertown Area YMCA as well as brother/sister galleries and art-related businesses.

Studio B is located at 39A E. Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, Pa. Visit www.studiobbb.org for more information.
